Hey Howl Pack

It’s Mae Polzine! I started this blog back in 2015 to be a place where I could be creative and share things that I love. So, I post a variety of things. I stream a variety of things (gaming, body paint, art, etc.) on Twitch multiple times a week, with stream highlights and all VODs posted on my YouTube Channel.

Lastly, join our Discord to chat with other pack members. We have a great and supportive community over there. I love talking with everyone in Discord as it’s a great way to connect. Also, I offer Twitch emotes, sub badges, and moreover on my shop page as well as my own merch.

3 Looks 1 Palette: Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette

Since I’ve moved I can finally get access to my makeup again as I packed it probably way sooner than I should’ve. Though it’s summer I was in the mood for more grungy makeup typically seen in fall. And since I have a series going of three look one palette, I thought I would revisit one of my favorites, Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette. I’ve used this palette several times in the past for posts but I haven’t done one of these kinds of posts for it. So that’s exactly what we’re doing today.

Makeup Launches That Didn’t Go Over Well

Brands release new products all of the time, and sometimes they don’t go over so well. Other times they go down in flames, which is what we’re focusing on today. This is not anything against the brands as I do enjoy a fair amount of these brands and some of the products I’m mentioning in the post I don’t have problems with personally.

Can We Dupe it? Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette

Continuing on with my single pan declutter project, I’m going to be comparing my individual shadows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette as it’s one of my go to palettes. Sometimes I do have issues with Subculture, but ultimately the shades just call to me. So I want to see just how close we can get to recreating the palette using my individual shadows. Now I know for a fact we won’t get close on a large majority of the shades.

Comparing Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette with Makeup Revolution Reloaded Division Palette

In the past I called the Makeup Revolution Reloaded Division Palette a dupe to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette before I even had that palette. Now that I have the Subculture Palette, I wanted to test just how true that actually was. Not that I think I was massive off but now I can prove my words even more. Not just based off the looks of the shades in the palettes.

Is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette as Bad as They Claim? Review & Swatches

One of the most hated palettes to come out within the last year is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. And even though Anastasia Beverly Hills claims to have reformulated the palette, it still remains something beauty gurus compare palettes to if they are failures. As far as fall out, shadows not blending well into each other, and overall just a flop. Initially wanted this palette, it’s dark and edgy which is typically what I reach for when I’m going my makeup, but after so many negative reviews I added it onto my anti-haul list. The palette was removed from Ulta and only sold on Anastasia Beverly Hills’ website. And after trying my sister’s palettes for Soft Glam, Modern Renaissance, and Norvina I decided to just get the Subculture Eye Shadow Palette for myself and see if it’s still as terrible as everyone claimed.

Dupe for ABH Subculture: Makeup Revolution Reloaded Division Eyeshadow Palette

When the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette was announced, I wanted that palette in the worst way. The shades looked incredible and unique, truly something I did not have anywhere in my makeup collection. Then the palette dropped and everyone rushed to review it leaving the palette as the most hated palette on the internet. They did announce they were going to re-release the palette with a different pressing technique so there wouldn’t be as bad of full out. But the reviews of it’s performance just didn’t leave me with the confidence of wanting to try it. Still I longed for the colors. Then the other day while exploring Ulta, I came across the Makeup Revolution Reloaded Division Eyeshadow Palette which looked like a dupe for the ABH Subculture and I knew I had to try it!
